Namibia From Above

Theo Allofs taking his paraglider engine apart after flight over the desert, in October, 2014, in the Namib Desert, Namibia. A photographer has captured a bird’s eye view of the stunning Namib Desert from a paraglider. Theo Allofs travels the world taking stunning pictures of untouched landscapes from a unique perspective. Soaring 300 metres above ground, Theo shot the yellow sand dunes, dry red river beds and remote townships in Namibia. His use of a paraglider, which can soar to 1400m above ground, also allowed him to follow a flock of ostriches and a herd of zebras. Theo’s unusual method of transport meant he could explore the far reaches of the desert and minimise the disruption to wildlife. (Photo by Theo Allofs/Barcroft Media)
